Moes Anthill - Quitter

Moes Anthill is a band that was formed in 2011 by vocalist and guitarist Mario Moe Schelbert, who’s also the main man behind the songwriting. The music style is a blending among rock, folk pop, folk rock, americana, acoustic pop/rock, atmospheric pop and alternative folk along with some modern touches. It’s not that “weird” or complex as it sounds, especially if you think of artists like Elliott Smith, Lou Reed, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen, Van Morrison, John Mellencamp and so on.

You Black Emperor, the artist born as Danny Kiranos has a recognized sound that carries traces of artists such as Americana string band Old Crow Medicine Show and singer-songwriters William Elliott Whitmore and David Eugene Edwards of 16 Horsepower, allied with direct, often morbid lyrics shot through with a dark sense of humor.
